Half of U.S. voters say the economy or inflation is their number one issue heading into the November 8 midterm elections, according to a recent ABC/Ipsos poll. The poll shows that 28 percent of registered voters say the economy is their single most important issue for determining their ballot, while 22 percent say inflation is. Furthermore, 73 percent of Republican voters list the economy and inflation as their top issue going into the midterm elections — with 45 percent saying the economy and 28 percent saying inflation. The poll also found that half of independent voters (50 percent) say either the economy or inflation is their number one issue going into November.

And yet the Left still insists on harping about abortion and trans 'rights'. They will do as much damage as possible between the election and the start of the new Congress.

The governor of New York has already answered that by asking “ I can’t understand why that is so important to you”.

The left has nothing to run on except to scream about abortion rights. They have broken everything they have touched and don't want to talk about it, hence the number of Dems who refuse to debate their opponents. Love him or hate him, James Carville had it right: "It's the economy, stupid."

It's all in the same box. Prices go up and personal wealth goes down. The place where the rubber band snaps is different for everybody but it's all tied to Biden shutting off the energy supply. He is too far gone to understand what he did.

Only half? Are the other half all on the government dole? You don't double the price of gas, increase food prices by 30 to 40 percent, eliminate thousands of high paying jobs because you think oil is bad, let every Juan and Maria from every third world country come into the country and give them free stuff, a free trip to any part of the country, free healthcare and get an approval rating of over 50%. Then to top it off, have the FBI raid the homes of people because they don't agree with your policies.

Inflation is not the only reason to vote against the Democrats. They have opposed free speech, reduced retirement assets by 20% or more for millions, instituted energy policies that defy reason, insisted that you call a man a woman, promoted mutilation of children, brought a criminal mentality into the administration of law, to list a few of their offenses to rational thinking and benevolent politics.

Only half? Then the other half is too stupid to be allowed to vote. They are the ones still home after Covid living off government benefits and have no worries about food or health care costs since someone else is covering the bill. No need for gas since they don't go to work.

50% my behind. I don't believe 50% of the population are government workers, Democrat media hounds, college students or still living in moms basement. If you've had to fill your own gas tank or buy your own groceries, you know there's inflation and a tanked economy.

I just made a modest contribution at, and encourage you people to consider doing the same. It is easy and quick, and could counterbalance the dirty hollywood money being poured on the lertists.

Shanghai’s Disneyland Resort abruptly closed Monday to comply with China’s strict COVID-19 protocols, leaving visitors stranded inside the theme park. The resort broke the news at 11:39 a.m. local time Monday, or 11:39 p.m. ET Sunday, that it would immediately shut the main theme park and surrounding areas, including its shopping street, until further notice to comply with virus curbs. All guests were directed to stay inside the park until they returned a negative test for the virus. “Following the pandemic control measures per government guidelines, Shanghai Disneyland temporarily closed today,” a Disney spokesperson told The Post on Monday. “The COVID testing process was expedited and all guests have exited the park.”

The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a request from Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to quash a grand jury subpoena in a Georgia prosecutor’s probe into alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election. The decision is a victory for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, whose office is investigating phone calls Graham made to Georgia election officials at a time when then-President Donald Trump was contesting the result. As a result of the court action, the subpoena can now be enforced, although Graham could refuse to answer questions by invoking his right against self-incrimination under the Constitution's Fifth Amendment.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts granted a stay, temporarily blocking former President Trump from having to turn over his tax records to Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee. Trump and his legal team on Monday filed asking the Supreme Court to block the release of his tax records. The House Ways and Means Committee first requested six years of Trump's tax returns in 2019.

Has Ukraine gotten into position to liberate Kherson and cut off Russian communications with Crimea? Moscow announced overnight that their forces, which had already displaced civilians on the western bank of the Dnipro near Kherson, would now evacuate civilians within 15 kilometers from the eastern bank as well. Vladimir Putin’s spinmeisters tried selling this as a move to a stronger defensive and protection against a WMD attack. This forced evacuation in reality strongly suggests that Russia expects to get pushed across the river and needs to set up a run for it: Russia ordered civilians to leave a sliver of Ukraine along the eastern bank of the Dnipro River, a major extension

Okay, let’s admit it. We’re rapidly reaching overkill on stories involving Elon Musk buying Twitter and the resulting liberal dogpanic. Me, I’d rather listen to some music. However, this one is too good to pass up noting. From Bloomberg: Twitter Inc., the social network being overhauled by new owner Elon Musk, has frozen some employee access to internal tools used for content moderation and other policy enforcement, curbing the staff’s ability to clamp down on misinformation ahead of a major US election.

Democrats have been trying desperately to come up with a winning narrative to fend off a red wave in the midterm elections next week, but according to the voters, they’ve failed to make the case. According to a new poll from the Trafalgar Group in conjunction with Convention of States Action, two-thirds of voters say Democrats haven’t convinced them to vote Democrat in the midterms, and a majority of voters (over 80%) believe that the Republicans will take over one or both houses of Congress. Only 34% of Americans think Biden and the Democratic Party leadership have made a convincing argument for why they should vote for Democratic candidates in 2022.

After a brief period of time over the summer where Democrats saw a little bit of a bump in their overall polling numbers and a slight momentum shift in their direction in the aftermath of the Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade, their hopes and dreams of a “comeback” of sorts ahead of the crucial midterm elections collided with some brutal reality checks. For starters, President Joe Biden’s approval numbers came crashing down to earth. Independent voters reasserted themselves as well, with Biden hitting new lows among that key voting bloc, with independents also expressing disapproval with his emphasis on abortion over kitchen table issues like inflation and the economy

The poll was conducted by Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio and Democratic pollster John Anzalone.

Even the meanest of intellects can see that something like a Narrative™ exists. Sometimes we call it “the current thing.” Some call it the “hive mind.” The edgier on the internet refer to the “non-player characters” (NPCs), comparing the people apparently mindlessly parroting the accepted Narrative™ as if they are pre-programmed characters in a video game. As if they have no will of their own. It’s impossible not to notice, though. When certain issues come up, anybody deviating from a certain position is viciously attacked and “cancelled.” The enforcers come from a certain economic or social class (“The Elite™), and while everybody can be victimized, the people most vulnerable

At the end of the marathon session, it seemed apparent that either affirmative action is dead, or at least it will be “pining for the fjords” when this decision is handed down around June 2023. At issue are two cases where universities use racial preferences to manage the melanin level of their student body (Supreme Court Adds Two New Education Affirmative Action Cases to its Docket and the Left Cries ‘Armageddon’).

The president spoke to reporters about the attack at a polling center in Delaware, where he voted early with his granddaughter Natalie Biden. “The talk has to stop. That’s the problem,” he said. “That’s the problem.” Biden appeared annoyed the Republicans were condemning political violence without condemning some of the rhetoric coming from their colleagues.

GOP aides on Capitol Hill and former strategists said they do not have insider knowledge about an indictment on Trump, but they claim that a deadline to indict the former president is quickly approaching and Garland is facing heat from Democrats to act fast. However, indicting Trump could have negative consequences for Democrats, some aides suggested.

But a more recent issue, inflation, could very well rule the day. And favor Republicans,” Pauley bemoaned.

Here is a question for Republicans to consider before next week’s midterm elections: How far does former President Donald Trump have to go before the GOP kicks him out of the party? Put another way, will the Republican Party save itself before it has completely lost its soul?

It has been equally disappointing to see so many Americans buy Trump’s “big lie” about the 2020 election. (snip) Trump continues corrupting the party of Lincoln
